    The harbour in S. Margherita Ligure. 3 more images

    by Maurizioago Updated Aug 30, 2012

    I did some day trips to Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino from Zoagli.

    Santa Margherita Ligure is a large sea side town some ten minutes by train from Zoagli. It has some peeble beaches, a big church; the basilica of Santa Margherita di Antiochia and a villa open to visitors. Villa Durazzo-Centurione. It was built in 1678 as a summer mansion. This is a complex which includes the main villa and two dependances; Villa San Giacomo and Villa Nido. Villa Durazzo Centurione has a beautiful park.

    You can go to Portofino from Santa Margherita Ligure by direct bus. The journey should take around five minutes. Portofino is a little village by the sea. It is visited by lots of famous and rich people. The main sights of this village is a castle; Castello Brown; a couple of churches and the so-called Piazzetta. This is a square surrounded by colorful and tall buildings.

    Zoagli has two nice promenades made of stones.

    The oldest is the Passeggiata Canevaro. It was built in the 1930's; mostly with the money from the inhabitants of Zoagli. The other; the Passeggiata dei Naviganti was built in 2003.

    zoagli - the beach

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Probably not the best beach in Italy but the sea is rather clean if compared to other places in Liguria. A Con's is that the pebbled stripe lies just next to the railway bridge - not a great thing. In any case the atmosphere of the bay is relaxing if you are off season.

    When I was in Zoagli I used to go at Simonetti's to have my ice cream around 5 or 6 p. m. This place is quite old and not nice, but the ice creams here were really good.

    They have a large choice of savours. The only one I didn't like much was the coffee ice cream.

    Favorite Dish: Banana ice cream was really good.

    Acqua e Farina is a small take away place, where you can have slices of pizza and some other savoury snacks.

    Unfortunately there is only a table with some chairs if you like to eat something inside this place.

    Favorite Dish: I liked much a kind of pizza topped with melted cheese.

    Favorite thing: This is a mansion more than a castle. It was built in 1914 in a Medieval and Gothyc style.

    Probably many of you don't know who Sem Benelli was. Well, he was a writer and movie directior. He ordered this villa to be built, but later he had to sold it due to his economical problems.

    Today this mansion is a private property. There are apartments inside. So you cannot enter its estate to take pics.
